China Truck Drivers Protest Rising Fuel Costs

VOA Breaking News (Voice of America)

Truck drivers protested for a third day at Shanghai port facilities Friday against rising fuel prices they say are eating away at their profits.
Protesters assembled Friday at a cargo handling center in the district of Baoshan in Shanghai’s northeastern outskirts.
Police have been dispatched to several port sites in the city since Wednesday, when drivers gathered to call for higher freight rates to offset hikes in diesel prices.
Chinese leaders have said that taming inflation is a priority this year.
Communist Party members fear that rising prices could spread unrest, which would be a threat to China’s one-party system.
